You can use your own laptop, or the attached PC (thin-client) but you don't have to of course! Also note we have a double-sided whiteboard/pinboard. The whiteboard may be useful for talking through ideas and plans and sketching out concepts.
This facility is provided jointly by the University Library and the Department, and illustrates the type of study space you can also find in the Harry Fairhurst building.
As well as providing books, journals and electronic resources, the library provides specialised spaces for you to study and collaborate, so if you're struggling to find the right venue to plan your presentation, miniproject, or to do a bit of group revision, the group study area in Psychology maybe useful or you could visit the Harry Fairhurst building and the other study facilities in the Library.
Ensure the display is on (LED indicator on front, bottom right of display). If not the ON/OFF button is found on the back.
The ‘Thin Client Service’ provides a basic University Supported PC for web browsing, email, accessing university and library systems etc.
The setup is similar to PCs in our labs and those in the library.
The computer is not powerful and relies on a network connection to update its display, hence the thin client is not ideal for graphically or computationally demanding tasks.
